    Dear Colleagues,

    I would like to invite you to our women's entrepreneurship luncheon on November 4th from 11:15-12:45 Abilene time.  We are excited with our line-up of speakers, and we think you will be equally enthused!

    We are going to rock 'n roll with our first speaker, Ms. Lena Bruun, who fundraised, developed, and launched the world's premier Rock and Roll Museum in Copenhagen. 

    Our second entrepreneur, Ms. Anne-Marie Hall, wants you to put your best foot forward by staying healthy.   She designed, developed, and instituted a one of kind healthcare accelerator that is at the forefront of medical innovation. 

    Lastly, we are hosting Ms. Karin Strzeletz Ivertsen, an entrepreneur who makes dreams come true.  As a child-wish consultant, she works with couples who want children--children who can live, grow, and be productive in today's society.     

     This year's event will be a hybrid event.  For those who would like to attend the event in person, it will be held from 11:15 am to 12:45pm on November 4th on McMurry's campus in the Mabee Room Lunch will be hosted by The Center for Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, and includes delicious traditional Danish cuisine.  For those who prefer to attend remotely, they may access the event through the following zoom link:
